Written answers (Question to Public)

While the Minister of State at my Department has carried out numerous functions on my behalf, particularly in relation to the Office of Public Works and Public Service Reform, no Order under the Ministers and Secretaries (Amendment)(No. 2) Act 1977 delegating functions to the Minister of State has been signed by me.  The senior civil servants with overall reporting responsibility in the areas mentioned are the Chairman of the Office of Public Works and the Assistant Secretary who heads the Public Service Reform Unit in my Department.
